What is SEL?

  • Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions (CASEL.org). As part of the EPISD 2020 strategic plan, we partnered with the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) to strategically implement school-wide SEL. By 2019-2020, over 85% of our campuses will be participating in the school-wide implementation of SEL.
